Founded in 1976 and headquartered in Eugene, Oregon, BHS designs, manufactures and installs processing systems tailored to extract recyclables from the waste stream.

BHS is building the largest, most rugged and highest performing MRFs in the world.  As a result, our customers are leading the industry with the highest throughput, recovery, and purity rates achieved anywhere.  Simply put, our customers realize higher profits than their peers.

This early experience gave BHS insight into processing various types of material streams, knowledge that would prove invaluable as we set our sights on a new and emerging market – extracting recyclables from waste streams.

The beginning
BHS’s history of pairing innovation with common sense has enabled thousands of companies to literally cut through the clutter. From the start, BHS gained rapid acceptance as a prominent supplier of functional, high quality conveying and screening equipment for the forest products and power generation industries – complete systems that featured the industry’s only inline screening.

Innovation: Changing the game
The growing demand for innovative solutions to automate the recycling industry prompted the company to apply our innovative, patented screening technology to mixed recyclables and municipal solid waste (MSW) industry in the early 1980s. Shortly after, BHS designed and installed the first modern single-stream processing system in the United States – a blueprint that has defined the industry.

Vision: Becoming the leader
The early success of our customers drove BHS to invest even more resources in the recycling industry.  Continued innovation and our vision of becoming the world’s premier MRF supplier has lead to better equipment, more efficient systems, and higher performance. Our loyal customers have grown to expect the highest standards, and we’ve delivered.

Innovating for the future
As we look toward the future, we see waste management companies, recyclers, and municipalities around the world facing changing material streams,  unprecedented diversion expectations and a new drive toward creating energy from waste.  BHS continues to set the pace by developing innovative solutions to these challenges, ensuring our customers will lead the industry now and in the future.
